A wonderfully textured mid-century landscape oil painting, depicting a row of houses on a hill top.
Largely abstract in composition, the artist focuses on colour contrasts to create a sense of depth and space and has used blocks of muted subdued tones including shades of taupe and green to form this composition.
Upon closer inspection of the painting, we can notice how layers of colours have been skilfully and thoughtfully applied – using cobalt blue as the starting undertone colour on the right, and burnt orange on the left.
The artist has also used the impasto technique, using broad and expressive brushstrokes to create thick and creamy layers of paint to form a raw textural and three-dimensional effect.
Furthermore, there is a layer of varnish that coats the surface of the painting. This gives it a layer of shine, enhancing its aesthetic appeal whilst acting as a layer of protection to the artwork.
This oil on board is in excellent vintage condition. It is housed in its original champagne gold frame that has areas of marks commensurate with its age.
Do note that some glare is evident in the photograph due to the varnish on the picture.
Size: 28.5 x 51 cm (including frame)
